Photography can give any vision its voice.  
 By this I mean, any look you can imagine or envision, you can achieve with the medium of photography. 
 It may be soft impressionism, minute detail, minimalist design, vintage look, collage......
 dream it and it can be done.

Granted you may need a different lens, special technique, or editing software, but what an amazing medium!

These photos emulate the qualities that the French Impressionists captured in their paintings. 
 This look can be achieved with a hand-held shot taken in low light or by actually moving the camera while shooting. 
 Different movements - vertical, horizontal, circular - will create different looks. 
 Experiment and enjoy!

(And yes, we still have snow covering everything in northern Wisconsin. 
 I know, that's hard to believe!)


  1. They really are beautifully impressionistic. And - I'm sorry to hear you're still blanketed in snow. Winter - everlasting!!!
